Faith Is More Than Believing;Take your Next Step Of Faith.

image

“And Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your faith has made you well.’ Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.” (Mark 10:52 NASB)

I don’t know what step you need to take next, but I do know that you need to take it. For some of you, the next step is to accept Jesus Christ into your life. For others, it may be to be baptized. Maybe you need to join a church, get into a small group, tithe, find a ministry, go on a mission trip, or invite a friend to church. I don’t know what your next step is, but I do know this: You have one. God will never be finished taking you deeper in faith. There is always a next step.

If you don’t take the next step, you’re going to get stuck in a rut and the only difference between a grave and a rut is the length. If you don’t move forward in faith, you will die. Your heart will grow cold, and you will feel more distant from God. He isn’t going to help you with step three, four, and five until you take step one. If you’re asking God to help you with something, he’s asking you, “Why haven’t you done what I’ve already told you to do?” You may have “been aiming to” do something. Stop aiming and pull the trigger.

Before Bartimaeus met Jesus, he was sitting beside the road. After he received his sight from the Lord, he “began following Jesus on the road” (Mark 10:52b NASB). Which of those two phrases describes your life: sitting beside the road or following Jesus on the road? Which of those two lifestyles do you think is more fulfilling? Which do you think has more joy, more meaning, and more satisfaction? Which one do you want to represent your life?

There’s only one way to follow Jesus on the road: Take the next step.

Faith is more than believing. Faith is more than thinking, talking, or having convictions about Jesus. Faith is action. It is movement; it is activity. Faith is something you do. In fact, the Bible says in James 2:14, “If people say they have faith, but do nothing, their faith is worth nothing” (NCV).  

Where do you get the faith to begin a fresh start? There’s only one source: Jesus Christ.

“Everything that we have right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start comes from God by way of Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 1:30 MSG). Bartimaeus had no idea that Jesus Christ was going to pass his way that day. To him, it was just another day. But God gave him an unexpected opportunity that offered him a fresh start. God is giving you the same opportunity. Don’t blow it. Take your next step of faith before the opportunity passes you by.

Are you aware of your Final destination?

By Lawrence Ibe

image

WHAT IF…..

You woke up today and you saw your body still laying helplessly on the bed. You were shocked so you tried calling your sibling who was sleeping next to you and he did not hear you mention his name.

You tried to pick up your phone to make a call to somebody and you couldn’t pick it up. You started crying but no one heard you.You tried touching the gate to go out, but ur hand penetrated. You went outside and your house mates were Chating, but you were not recognized.

After some few minutes,you saw your Brothers And sisters coming out of your room shouting and crying  All you could hear them say was”HE IS DEAD”

You stood there watching them cry.
So you asked urself WHERE EXACTLY AM I GOING.  Your spirit started crying bitterly, because you were not prepared to start that journey so sooner.

Where exactly are you going when you stop breathing? Are you aware of your final destination? So start preparing. Look on to Jesus, He alone knows the way to the best destination (Heaven).

Be wise! it can take you unawares!

Lynxxx writes on the spiritual implications of pre-marital sex

Now this topic I’ve spent alot of time studying, especially from a Spiritual angle. Premarital sex to be exact and there are so many layers of blatant truth and implications to this act of satisfying the desires of the flesh we all need to be enlightened by.

This is definitely one topic our generation doesn’t want to hear about and no I’m no saint either so don’t think I’m pointing fingers at anyone or judging. Like always, I’m sharing my truth and thoughts. 

I’ll go straight to the key issues so I don’t end up writing a book.

Please be very careful about who you are intimate with and who yuo share your body with. We tend to see only the physical side of sex and ignore the existence of the Spiritual (which is the MOST important).

In this generation, sex is as common as a handshake, no sentiments to it, no love attached to it, its now a commodity for trade (cash and benefits alike) people sell their dignity for cash, cars, houses, bags, shoes and Luxurious Holidays like its nothing and come on the gram stunting.

Living for today but i promise you it would eventually catch up to you in time because we may not see the act but never forget GOD DOES! 

Sex was invented by God for communion between Husband and Wife, to create a greater bonding experience and he knew the power of it hence the commandments restricting us from Premarital sex. 

Everytime we have sex, there’s an exchange of spiritual energy between both people, be careful what you invite into your temple cos there are consequences that may not manifest in the Physical.

Sex plays a major role in so many Life issues and marriage problems today, from Heartbreaks, cheating, abortions, adultery, pregnancies, STDs, Guilt / betrayals and the list goes on! Most important of all It distances us from God.

Now being distant from God, how do we expect the relationship to be blessed by him? The harsh truth is, a relationship with two sexually active individuals is definitely not one that Glorifies God so whatever fruits that relationships bears is up to them. 

A Relationship that has God as the foundation and center would bear fruits and eventually lead to multiplication.

The choice is Ours and so are the consequences.

Lord, I hear you whisper

image

The Lord whispered to me, “I love you so,”
“Come follow me, my child, high places we will go.”
The Lord knelt beside me at an altar in prayer,
He wiped my tears and took away my despair.
“Come follow me, my child,” the Lord whispered to me,
“There will be no more pain, but oh so much to gain.”
He said, “I forgive you now for all you’ve done,”
Now it’s time to receive the love of God’s only son.”
His love was so warm, so bright and so true,
I could not believe my soul he had renewed,
He repaired my soul from the inside out.
It was then and only then I knew what love was about.
The cleansing power that fell over me,
Was the love of the Lord as he carried me.
“Come follow me, my child,” the Lord whispered to me,
“In that sweet holy land someday you will be.
You will see the Lord’s face at those big pearly gates,
Where loved ones embrace and angels await.
Come follow me, my child,” the Lord whispered to me,
“I will love you always, your protector I’ll be.”
